Eight Countries, Territories On Track for Non-Latin ccTLDs

Issued: March 01 2010
ICANN has approved the fast-track requests from eight countries seeking to have their own, non-Latin character country code top-level domains, including several in Asia.

The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process was approved by the ICANN board at its annual meeting in Seoul last October 30. The process enables countries and territories to submit requests to ICANN for IDN ccTLDs, representing their respective country or territory names in scripts other than Latin. The languages used to express the IDN ccTLDs must be official in the corresponding country or territory.

The eight countries and territories who have met the requirements were announced by ICANN on March 23 and 24, and include China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Qatar, Tunisia and the Palestinian Territory.
